Solar Electric Fences

Solar energy for electric fencing is a practical solution to keeping livestock in and pests and predators out. Typically, a solar fence will have a 500 volt charge, enough to give a light, though harmless shock.

The situation of an electric fence-the remoteness and the need for a simple electrical system to power it - makes it an ideal opportunity to use solar (or wind) energy. These types of systems are in use as far north as northern Alberta.

As with other uses of solar PV in remote locations, a solar electric fence will require little (if any) maintenance. Typically, systems are equipped with battery backup, with enough supply to go two weeks without sunlight.

When positioning your solar panel, be sure that it is getting adequate sunlight. Be sure that:

  • It is facing the sun directly and at the proper angle: position the panel at noon. If you have time, check on it once a month and adjust the angle with the sun's seasonal angle.
  • It is unshaded.
